We have recently received an Awards 4 All Lottery grant for a new project called “iCreate” so that we can offer creative music and arts workshops to children and young people at 4 specialist schools in Peterborough.
The aim of I Create is to encourage children and young people to develop their creativity with sound, music, the arts and technology. The students will be provided with 10 two hour workshops, divided into two terms i.e. 5 consecutive workshops per term.
All workshops will be taught by two industry professionals; the aim is to ensure consistency and regularity. Liaising with teachers and course tutors ahead of the workshops the Beat This team will develop aims and goals beneficial to the students. Splitting the 10 workshops over two terms, gives teachers and course leaders the opportunity to evaluate the work produced.
The schools we are working with are:
The Phoenix School,
The City College
Thanks to the Lottery for making this happen for the pupils at these schools.
